About Tom Creek Kennels

Tom Creek Kennels is a professional gun dog trainer and breeder of German Shorthaired Pointers and is located in Rock Rapids, Iowa just east of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Our German Shorthaired Pointers are bred for style, desire and temperament, are AKC registered, and 100% guaranteed.



Our goal is to provide quality German Shorthaired Pointers for the foot hunter, as well as great additions to the family. We sell German Shorthaired Pointer puppies, started dogs, and finished dogs, with a variety of colors such as: liver roan, black roan, white & liver, white & black, solid liver and solid black.

Being upland bird hunters ourselves, we know what it takes to make a great gun dog. This is why we train hunting dogs, to ensure the good quality every gun dog hunter deserves in a German Shorthaired Pointer. All of our German Shorthaired Pointer puppies and started dogs are raised in a family environment.

Likewise, our German Shorthaired Pointers are allowed to run among each other to promote healthy interaction and friendliness. All of our breeding is done on site.

German Shorthaired Pointers make great upland bird hunting dogs and great family pet's. GSP's are as comfortable in the field running down wild roosters as they are on your couch. Our dogs are bred with the best traits and personalities to enhance the characteristic's that are best for a complete gun dog and family pet.

Tom Creek Kennels has a history of producing top quality gun dog's with a proven history of outstanding results. Our customers have stated over the years of their satisfaction and enjoyment of owning a great gun dog that performs at the highest level in the field. The German Shorthaired Pointer is a great dog in the field or in water, making them a great versatile hunting dog for both upland bird hunting or for waterfowl hunting.

100% guaranteed from nose to tail and everything in between. All our German Shorthaired Pointer puppies and gun dogs are guaranteed to be physically healthy at time of delivery. All shots and worming will be up to date. We will guarantee the hips to be rated as fair, good or excellent in an official O.F.A. licensed X-Ray procedure. This must not be done before the dog reaches 24 months of age and can not be done after 26 months of age. Our guarantee also covers any other diagnosed genetic defects, detected by the age of 26 months.

All my German Shorthaired Pointers are guaranteed to perform as advertised. As long as these steps are followed: when you get a started or finished gun dog from me, you must socialize the dog with yourself and the terrain that you will be hunting in, if different than Iowa. Work on the commands I send you, so the dog can get familiar with your voice and movements. This should be done over a two week period. Note: Young started dogs may take longer to adapt to new terrain and weather conditions, as it's a new learning experience for them. Please do not expect a young gun dog to hunt all day non-stop.

Tom Creek Kennels is experienced at shipping gun dogs via ground or air transportation. Shipping of gun dogs is currently available by air or ground transportation only in the continental United States and Canada.

A couple of years ago I purchased a puppy from your Kennel, out of your Ike and Lady litter and she has become not only a member of the family but a top notch hunting companion. Missy and I bird hunted all over the country this season and last with many South Dakota, Missouri and Arkansas hunts under our belts and are leaving for a New Mexico quail hunt next week, another first for both of us!

I must say Missy is the best GSP I have ever owned, she backed, pointed and retrieved right out of the box.

Tom Creek Kennels has helped me through the training process and if I ever had a problem they were only a phone call away. Jim knows his GSP's and has help me become a better trainer. If your looking for a well rounded GSP Tom Creek pups are the way to go.

Thanks Jim for your hard work and dedication to the breed.

We purchased our first GSP from Tom Creek Kennels in November of 2008. Our "Gracie" is a 50lb, 23" female from the litter of Abbelane's Isabella and Grouse Points Ike.

We could not be happier with Gracie. She has a great temperament around the house coupled with fabulous drive in the field. She is eager to learn and very easy to train. Great nose and instinct from day one, loves to hunt.

Our experience with Jim, Belinda and family at Tom Creek was exceptional. We did a lot of looking for our first pup, wanting both a hunting dog and well-socialized family pet. When we met Jim and Belinda for the first time, you could immediately see how much they cared about all of their pups. All were well socialized and very healthy.

I would, without a doubt, recommend Tom Creek Kennels for your hunting dog and family companion.
